conflict of interest. all right. onto the item h. superintendents proposals we have 130 revision to policy 4040 employee harassment. that was moved and seconded already. could you provide us with therd of the resolution >> yes. thank you, president norton. superintendents proposal and revision of board proposal employees sexual harassment is that the board of education revises policy entitled employees sexual harassment >> thank you there are no public speakers signed up for this item. may i hear are there any comments from the board or
superintendant >> i'll to put in an additional. one of the things that gets overlooked is a hostile workplace like photos that creates a hostile environment. my proposed language is roman numerical 2 under conduct to add workplace hostile environment is prohibited in person or other means of conversation or through virtually or media. the language accounts for an increasing trend in social media being used to harass people
whether it's texted messages or povrts things of that nature. i want to make sure that the policy addresses some of the changing ways in which people have found to harass each other >> are you making a motion to amend the policy. >> yes. i'd like to ask the superintendant to adopt the amendment. >> slightly. >> all right. so that does not require a vote of the board. any other comments from board members. yes commissioner >> i want to thank the superintendant for bringing this forward and also the commissioner for her guidance on this. i know it's going gone to the boards committee many times. >> any other comments.
seeing none, madam clerk, please call the roll. >> (calling names). >> i'm having leave attributable with hearing. i >> if you could speak in the microphone that would help. >> okay noted. >> commissioner norton. >> all right. we will now move into item i. can you hear me mrs. winn. all right. we're moving on to item i. in support of a policy allowing students to eat breakfast during
the first class of the day it was moved and seconded on june neiman >> curriculum committee credit card this on october 7th and came with a arrived at the positive recommendation for approval. >> at the. now the resolution i would like to i'm the adult sponsor of this resolution but our former speths megan wong wrote this. i wanted to ask the student delegates to help me read this into the record >> okay. do i read the resolution number?
i've never done this before >> i can start in port of the policy. in support of the policy allowing the students to eat the breakfast during the first class of the day. we need the brains fuel whereas breakfast provides energy to lead to concentration and helps the students ability to learn. whereas students who don't eat breakfast have a harder time. and on demanding mental tasks eating breakfast attribute to hire group intact and daily vitamin intact and better overall health.
and whereas school breakfast helps the learning environment and a whereas currently 7 high school schools they serve breakfast for students who come to more than class >> and whereas u.s. f d the department department of agriculture and the reimbursement is based on the number of breakfast and multiplied by $1.50 for free meals and $1.25 and whereas in the year of 2010 to 11 there were 33 thousand 1 hundred and 29 low income students only 29
or 15 percent participated. the school participation was much higher 19 thousand plus students who were allowed to eat breakfast would be likely it there the number of low income students in the program. therefore be it resolved that the board of education requests the superintendant to explore developing a plan for all students to finish or eat their breakfast at the beginning of the school day and we have one speaker ms. signing solomon you have 2 minutes >> thank you susan exclusive
vice president. i think this is a great idea. it will help you never skip breakfast as some of you know. i taught kindergarten and this is helpful. some extra assistance in keeping the classrooms clean would help and teachers are keeping food in their classrooms and they get problems with rod dents. and having the correct complainers so if there can be some way of making sure everyone gets some help in the classrooms for keeping it clean. and at the for this resolution >> thank you, ms. solomon. >> i neglected to call on ms. o'keef any comments you want to
make about this request before we move into any discussion. >> thank ou good evening. no, just to say we're excitedblast about this resolution and we look forward to working with the staff and our union partners to figure out the details and come back to the board. we have grab and go breakfast so we think that having this opportunity will help participation and we have a breakfast expansion grantee elementary level with different schools our second chance breakfast. so thank you >> thank you. any comments from board members? did i lose >> i have some comments. >> wait i think we just lost quorum.
in terms of go ahead >> first of all, i want to have my name added as a sponsor i'm extremely commented to this and it's important for our school nutrition program this is just in keeping iowa we want to do and that will have a huge impact on students. it's been what i understand from talking to the student nutrition managers i appreciate what ms. solomon said but we haven't had a big problem this is a better way to address the issue of managing food in the classrooms it's a given period of time people clean up together so we need to pay attention to that but so far it's not a problem.
i want my name on the resolution >> i'd be happy to add your name. >> thank you, president norton. i concur with the commissioners all of us should support this effort and at the for bringing this forward >> thank you. i just - is there any other comments from board members. >> i wanted to acknowledge the contributions of ms. lee and ms. wong. they referred to this resolution and brought it to me and they're the driving force behind it. i'm sorry they're not here but i know mr. seal you contacted them were you able to speak with them >> i spoke with wendy haven't
been to corridor with megan yet. >> after conferring we having had a little bit of discussion about a timeline open the plan. after conferring with ms. o'keef i'd like to amend the resolution to have the plan brought to us by the end of this currency 13, fourteen school year so i want to amend the it received to have that added anyone want to second and any discussion on the motion. no? can he vote on the motion please
(calling names) unanimous >> the amendment resolution we'll vote on i want to further request if we could have periodic units either in the curriculum i guess it make sense in the curriculum committee to have it there so dr. if you could put this on the agenda for the remainder of the school year about any issues putting this plan together. i think as ms. solomon said there's some issues we want to make sure we're moving forward in a way that make sense. so if that's okay to put it on the agenda >> on the committee. >> okay. great roll call please o
